Description

“Straight-up delicioso” describes both the food and the scene at this ever-“trendy” SoHo Mexican comprising a “dive”-like taqueria, casual indoor/outdoor cafe and “ultracool”, hard-to-access underground grotto; the Williamsburg spin-off set in a “futuristic retro diner” comes equipped with a moody back room and “huge outdoor patio.” --Zagat

Description

Audrey Saunders' SoHo temple to the “science of haute cocktails” “lives up to its reputation” with a “can't-go-wrong” drink menu “cleverly concocted” by “experienced” hands behind the bar; nestled in a “swanky” upstairs space that transports you to a “former British colony”, it's an “expensive” but “fantastic” place to socialize or take a “dressed-up date.” --Zagat
